Creativepool has officially announced the shortlist nominees; this brings the start of the People’s Choice voting for the 2017 Annual and Awards, with support from jones knowles ritchie, Saddington Baynes, and Made in Global.
The excitement growing around this year’s Annual Shortlist is a reflection not only of the global creative talent found on Creativepool, but in the creative industries as a whole, particularly in a time when creativity is needed more than ever before. The People's Choice competition also offers a unique angle to the competition by providing the whole creative community the chance to let their voices and their opinions be heard – allowing them to be considered outside of the normal conditions of creative award judging panels.
